A nearly 8,900-square-foot penthouse is up for grabs at 443 Greenwich Street — for a cool $57 million.

The triplex looks like it belongs to Formula One star Lewis Hamilton, who reportedly paid $44 million for a penthouse in MetroLoft Management’s renovated condominium in 2017.

Hamilton’s team did not immediately respond to a media inquiry about the listing.

But now, it looks like the owner of the newly listed triplex — which boasts 15 rooms, nearly 3,400 square feet of additional private outdoor space and its own pool — wants even more than its first listing price. Its previous $44 million sale price was a $10 million chop from its original ask.

Last year, Jet.com’s founder Marc Lore bought another five-bedroom penthouse at 443 Greenwich Street for about $43.8 million, nearly $14 million off from its $58 million asking price. Lore’s condo spans 8,659 square feet and also has its own pool.

Regardless, a $57 million sale — while clearly significant — would still be a bit off from downtown Manhattan’s sales record. That title belongs to a $59 million sale last year at the Getty at 503 West 24th Street.

Brown Harris Stevens’ Mara Papasoff, who has the listing, also did not return a message seeking comment.

Meanwhile, Hamilton appeared to have bought another penthouse in the neighborhood in December. He took a unit at Related Companies’ 70 Vestry Street for about $40.7 million, a block a way and smaller than the 443 Greenwich Street pad, according to the Wall Street Journal.
